Harry Wakes suddenly. Breathing deeply in the night.
He waits a moment. Calming himself. And then he feels intense pain, in his forehead. In his scar. Around him Dark Magic moves.
Ginny Harry …
Harry It’s fine. Go back to sleep.
The room is filled with light from her wand. Harry looks at her.
Ginny About what?
Harry The Dursleys – well it started there – then it became something else.
Pause. Ginny looks at him – trying to work out where he is.
Ginny Do you want a Sleeping Draught?
Harry No. I’ll be fine. Go back to sleep.
Ginny You don’t seem fine.
Harry says nothing.
(Seeing his agitation.) It can’t have been easy – with Amos Diggory.
Harry Anger I can cope with, the fact he’s right is harder. Amos lost his son because of me –
Ginny That doesn’t seem particularly fair on yourself –
Harry – and there’s nothing I can say – nothing I can say to anyone – unless it’s the wrong thing of course.
